Glimpse of our system once the Sun is dead? First Jupiter-sized exoplanet found orbiting white dwarf star
Past research has indicated that some white dwarf stars can retain some of the more distant remnants of their planetary systems.
The star, located in the Fly constellation, is barely 17 million years old and by contrast, our sun is 4.5 billion years old.
One of the flares was 20 times larger than those emitted by our sun
WASP 148 was host to two planets WASP 148b that orbits around its in nine days and WASP 148c which takes four times longer.
The lab simulations reveal that sulfur can significantly impact observations of far-flung planets beyond the solar system.
The planet has a mass higher than Earth, though much lower when compared to the ice giants — Uranus and Neptune.
The potentially-habitable planets are fairly close to their suns, making them prime targets for next-gen telescopes.
Scientists cannot go, visit other planets to find signs of life and can use this telescope to do so.
The telescope, if approved, will have a mission life of 5 years and four instruments that will help in its mission.
This new class of exoplanets has the lowest density of any planets discovered outside of our solar system.
IAU settled on 'Bibha' and 'Santamasa' at the end of the global 'NameExoWorlds' contest organised during its centenary celebrations.
CHEOPS will focus on 100 extrasolar planets to see if there’s an Earth-like planet capable of sustaining life
Cheops, to be launched on Soyuz-Fregat rocket, is a new telescope whose name stands for CHaracterising ExOPlanet Satellite.
TESS teamed up with Breakthrough Listen, an extraterrestrial intelligence search founded by Russian billionaire Yuri Milner.
Covering new research advances is valuable, even when the underlying science is unsettled. But there are also risks.
Scientists came to this conclusion by studying the elements from rocky planets and fragments of asteroids.
"If we are talking about exoplanets, things should be clear: we will not migrate there," Mayor said.
Star system 30-light-years from Earth stumps astronomers, defies past theories about planet formation
Scientists think a second planet also orbits the star, and a third, that was ejected from the system billions of years ago.
Member countries of IAU have been assigned one exoplanet and star it orbits for the naming process.
The exoplanet is about 23 times the Earth's mass, while the host star is 80% our Sun's mass.
